Swiftwater Rescue Technician (SRT) Training

Over a number of days, seven more members of the team completed and passed the DEFRA Level 3 Water Rescue course in conjunction with Outreach Rescue and Norfolk SAR Team.

The course consisted of lectures at our training facility near Wilmslow and practical training at Quarry Bank Mill, before moving to Wales and the National White Water Rafting Centre and Capel Curig.

This now brings the number of qualified SRTs within the team to 15.

Having this level of knowledge and awareness within the team will allow us to deploy safely as a flood responder and bank side search team; enabling there to be a high level of water awareness and safety.
